EU standards and Technical Regulations of the Customs Union
During developing the requirements of the Technical Regulation of the Customs Union (TR CU), many of TR CU have been harmonized with the requirements of European Directives.
For example, TR CU 012/2011 is similar to ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU, TR CU 004/2011 to LVD Directive 2014/35/EU and TR CU 020/2011 to EMC Directive 2014/30/EU.
However, they are not identical. This is due to the fact that the requirements are based on different national legislation.
Differences in national legislation in the field of standardization of products and services do not allow adoption of European standards in the Customs Union.
In order to create a single harmonized legislation in the sphere of standardization, multilateral and bilateral agreements, memorandum of cooperation and mutual understanding should be signed between Russia and European Union.
At the moment, the creation of a single legislation with united standards of product compliance between Russia and the European Union is not planned.
Technical Regulations of the Customs Union are adopted in five countries (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan).
The GOST standards containing rules and test methods required for application and execution of the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union (EAC certification) and conformity assessment of a product are valid in all five countries of the Customs Union.
